Based out of Santa Cruz, Ca, I am a holistic freelance hairstylist and makeup artist with close to fifteen years of experience. I was fortunate enough to find my calling at the young age of twelve years old when I box dyed my hair 606 auburn from Nice n' Easy. I went from a natural dark dark brunette to a vibrant red head. That was it for me! I learned I could make a living offering wonderful, often life-changing transformations for anyone in less than a few hours...yes please! Pairing that with my love of travel and the Nomadic Stylist was born. After completing my BA in studio art from the University of Iowa, I headed to the flagship Aveda Institute in Minneapolis. From The Vidal Sassoon academy in London, to NY Fashion week, to the Virgin Islands; I study, work and teach as far as I can dream!
My passion for organic, non-toxic and clean products began at 19 when I lost my mother suddenly to colon cancer. It opened my eyes to the fragility of life and the reality that so many products we use on a day to day basis may be harmful to us and our world. I've been on a quest since in searching for the best organic products and creating a clean environment where ever I roam. We owe it to ourselves and mother nature!
I specialize in on-location hair and makeup services and bring a well-crafted approach to ever-evolving styles. I always compliment my clients unique experiences through my craft and their vision. With a commitment to bringing you a positive, stress-free experience in the comfort of your environment, I bring the high-end amenities of the salon to you.
